Poof! Everyone now makes at least $50 an hour. Good idea? Or not?

Many things sound like a great idea at first. But what happens when you explore deeper? Look beyond the surface?

In a hypothetical move, the minimum wage is suddenly raised to $50 for everyone. Celebration time? Or might there be some unintended consequences?

Raise the Wage explores the history of minimum wage laws, where they can be found (or not) around the world, comparative wages, and what could occur when the wage is raised. Discover the benefits of early work experience and see what jobs teenagers are doing, and how much they make right now. Follow Kelly and Max, two teenagers who recently had job interviews, as they experience for themselves what might happen if the minimum wage suddenly rose to $50 an hour.
